Actions to Improve Health in Cuba

Cuba's health system, which consists of a nationwide network of specialized medical centers and a human capital that exceeds 50,000 professionals, has designed a wide range of programs to improve the people's quality of life.

The Caribbean Island provides alternatives to treat the most common diseases in the world, in addition to boosting rehabilitation, the fight against addictions and risk factors such as obesity.

In the case of the latter, obesity is regarded as a warning against other diseases, including high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular and orthopedic affections in general.

Thus the importance of having integral health programs that combine treatments by experts in several medical specialties and a common strategy, whose main goal is to restore the patient's physical conditions.

The combination of physical exercises – under professional guidance – and an appropriate diet is the key to keep an ideal weight, not only to lose the extra kilograms, but also to maintain good results.

Several health centers and even hotels provide treatments against obesity, a problem that affects a growing number of people in the world.

The complement to those initiatives is the so-called nutritional therapy, which allows doctors to design an appropriate diet on a case-by-case basis, and even allows patients to know what they can eat according to their needs.

Nutritional therapy begins with a careful assessment of the patient's state of health and a review of his/her diet. In case of obesity, this therapy can be combined with psychotherapy and techniques to change the patient's behavior.

In general, Cuba provides a wide range of specialized treatments whose common goal is to maintain excellent health conditions by means of prevention.

Regular medical checkups, which are available for foreign visitors, allow physicians to assess the patient's state of health and make it easier for them to give an accurate diagnosis of his/her ailments, which might be easily cured if detected in an early stage.

Cuba's health system also provides specialized medical checkups to patients suffering from cardiovascular problems, hypertension, gynecological affections (in the case of women) and infertility, and to those who need plastic surgery, among other treatments.

That way, Cuba offers state-of-the-art medical technology and highly-trained professionals, who are available to meet all medical needs and improve the people's quality of life.
